Zambia has agreed to start teaching Chinese language in all secondary school starting in 2020, according to the Zambia Daily Mail newspaper.
Super PF PORTRAYING FOOLISHNESS like a headless chicken no direction, next thing PF will be told to legalize DOG eating. Am pretty sure this is not the PF many voted for such a disappointment from head to toes.
No sense of belonging.
This is Cultural colonialism or imperialism by the Chinese. This should be made optional and not compulsory. We have our local languages which our children can also learn. Besides not everyone wants to send their children to China for studies.It is not the best destination for education. In addition, not every Zambian wants to go and do business in China.
The Daily Mail article states that the Ministry of Education assumes full responsibility of the rollout of the Chinese language. That means that all those Chinese teachers are going to be on the ministry’s budget. Which will probably mean that the budget will double, as I don’t think those Chinese will want to work for the pittance salaries that Zambian teachers get (if they actually get paid, whih has not been the case for three months rolling now). Not counting flights to/from China, accommodation etc.
There more Zambians travelling to China than America or UK…More business between Zambia and China so which language is more beneficial here…French is useless only good for sex, english is a colonizer’s language…chinise is a partnership language with chances of zambians benefiting more…
Must we stop learning french in schools as well if we are not comfortable with Chineses? nothing wrong with learning chinese and in fact you the rich take your kids abroad in schools where chines is taught. Let us journalist be objective in our reporting lest we prove our irrelevance to the people and readers. this aricle is certainly a sure MISS
This is another way of colonizing Zambia but my children will never learn this Chinese language we have enough languages in the country that we do not teach our children
My children will never learn in China so what is the FUSS about all this crap?
Maybe it is one way of paying back the debts.
Are the Chinese introducing Bemba Chinyanja silozi Iuvale etc in return?
